This isn't specifically my area of expertise, but in my research for "physical" engineering roles I often find accompanying software engineering roles, such as bioreactors for lab-grown meat, open sustainable technology projects, companies like Zipline working in low-income countries, start-ups that have gone through Y Combinator's non-profit program, and various biosecurity orgs/companies need bioinformatics/data scientists/software engineers. You can find more ideas on the 80k career review of software engineering.
